Eve recently revealed that an encounter with fellow rapper Mase helped to inspire her to quit stripping and become a rapper back in the 1990s. The Ruff Ryders rapper explains talks about her conversation with the former Bad Boy artist during an upcoming episode of VH1's "Behind The Music" series this week. "He came into the club and looked at me and literally was like, 'What's your name?' And I gave him every stripper name under the sun!," she reveals. "I was like, 'I'm Ginger, I'm Sassy!' He was like, 'Why don't you go get dressed, let's go just talk.' And we did, we talked throughout the night. He was like, 'You're really talented. What are you doing? You know you're not supposed to be here. You know it.' … It was a confirmation for me that all these thoughts, all this sadness. All these times that I wake up in the morning, I'm like, 'Why do I feel like this?' And I know I'm not supposed to be there. It just woke me up."
